This is a great all purpose crack repair, nail hole cover up, and filler product. It works for both indoor and exterior.
I have used it in my home as a nail/patch cover. But I primarily use it in between really old wood slats outside that get weathered and crack in the sun. I fill in the paint crack and slats with this product. It comes in a tube and you have to use a tube/gun for application. It comes out a little like silly puddy so it is moist and pliable, but does not drip. It holds its texture in beaded form. For me, I just point, shoot and fill the cracks. It dries with a white texture and then can be painted over.
I have used this many times over the years and a typical application that receives a lot of direct heat and sun exposure lasts about 3-4 years. I much rather do this once or twice in between exterior house paintings than to rip out, renovate and replace the wood (which is perfectly good, just exposed to the elements).
Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Good Protection, Dries Quickly

No, I do not recommend this product.
I stripped tons of 40 year old wallpaper in order to repaint my bedrooms only to find pesky cracks at the top of every door jam and below most windows. I was a bit unnerved by this but a contractor told me it was natural and occurs when houses settle over the years. I watched a bunch of video clips online about repairing these and many recommended widening to crack with a putty knife, filling it with caulk so it would stop the crack from happening again.
I couldn't find any caulk that said it was good to use for filling cracks in plaster, so I asked one of the people in the store who brought me to the painting isle and pointed this out. There was only one tub left, so I thought it must be good.
I put it in the crack with my spreading knife the way I would with joint compound. One thing you want to make sure of is that you do not leave a lot of this on the wall because despite the packaging saying it is easily sandable, it is NOT! Sanding this was so impossible with a block, I had to use my random orbital which still could not. Finally, I resorted to scraping the excess off with a wallpaper stripper chisel. Even then, it was not even and will show up when I paint.
Another issue is that this shrinks into the crack ... it took me 3 times applying it before the crack was filled. This stuff doesn't dry too quick ... so it basically took me 2 or 3 days PER CRACK to fill it because after you apply it once, it keeps shrinking into the crack so you have to put in multiple layers over the days. I almost wonder if this will eliminate the elastic property because each layer might have a little air in between.
Overall, I understand what this product is designed to do ... but I just don't think it is worth it based on the way it performs. Who knows ... maybe the cracks I filled with it won't expand. But I tend to doubt it. And beyond that, it looks much sloppier because it won't sand off completely than if I used something different.
The version in a caulk tube was not available at any stores near me, so I had to buy it in the tub and spread it on which probably didn't help things. I realize that I am a DIY'er and not a pro but most of the pros I spoke with about this product after applying it hadn't even heard of it before.
Pros: elastomeric
Cons: Difficult to Clean, shrinks after application, doesn't sand down evenly, takes a long time due to reapplications
